Prints from around the world coming to my house--watching for the postman, hoping one or more arrives today; then the thrill of opening the packages and thinking "Hey, I get to keep one of these!"

The prints in this exchange contain a fascinating variety of conceptions, techniques and of course the papers, which interest every printmaker. I hope everyone is as pleased with it as I am.

I found it easiest to collate the exchange by laying out 31 folders, then putting one each of the last participants prints on each folder, then the next to last, etc. That way I could tell at a glance if there was one of the same print on each folder, and if I ran out before the end could go over them and see where one was doubled up.
